Roubena Hartounian, 50, was taken into custody on suspicion of child neglect and endangerment at her residential daycare, Bina’s Family Child Care, which city officials closed after they discovered it had no power and there were rat droppings scattered inside, Glendale Police Sgt. Tom Lorenz said.

The girl’s parents dropped her off at the daycare early on Tuesday and picked her up that evening only to discover she was lethargic, he said. Hours later, the child’s condition wasn’t improving so they took her to Verdugo Hills Hospital.

At about midnight, police responded to the hospital, where doctors confirmed the child tested positive for THC, an active ingredient of marijuana, Lorenz said. The parents told police they believed their daughter “consumed” marijuana at the daycare home.
